SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

When it comes to cancer, it's crucial that it is diagnosed as early and accurately as possible, because depending on the type of cancer, this can hugely increase your chances of recovery. Unfortunately, medical professionals can sometimes make mistakes, and a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis can result in the cancer becoming more difficult to treat, or even becoming terminal.

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can be classed as medical or clinical negligence, meaning you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Cancer misdiagnosis can be divided into two categories:

  1. When your doctor or medical practitioner completely missed your illness or left it undiagnosed. For example, you may have visited your GP regarding some health issues over the years and they failed to diagnose your illness.
  2. When your doctor or medical practitioner makes an incorrect diagnosis. For example, if you have gone to your GP regarding bowel issues and the doctor diagnosed you with haemorrhoids, but it was actually bowel cancer.

Cancer delayed diagnosis

Different cancers develop in different ways and at different stages. If opportunities for a diagnosis are missed and the condition has developed to a more advanced stage, it may impact on your recovery outcome. A delay of a few months won't normally make much of a difference, but sometimes a delay of many months or years can be serious.
